Anna says this is from her husband's sister and that it is their latest favorite.

Melba's Note: Anna's my adorable younger sister who up and got married last summer. I had met her cute boyfriend once last March. Anna (then 19 yrs. old) called me in April or May and, just to be obnoxious, I said, "So are you engaged?" She was quiet for a minute and then said almost apologetically, "Yes. I am." She and Spencer (Spennie) are wonderful and I wish we didn't live so far away from them!
